1820s Dark Blue Sauce Tureen
- Source: Tias
Fabulous early dark blue sauce tureen. This is from the "Grapevine Border" series by Wood. There are over 57 views on this series. This is an English view. Unmarked. Circa 1825. Although fairly easy to find this series on plates and platters, hollow pieces are much harder to find. Very desireable form. Wonderful pierced acanthus handles. Nicely detailed rose finial. The transfer is crisp and detailed. Vivid dark blue color. Appearance is excellent. There is a tiny repair to a shallow chip on the inside collar(done well but lid covers this anyway). A line (spider) on the collar. These are hard to find and do not detract. The appearance of this piece is near mint. Better than described. Sauce tureen measures about 6 1/2" to the top of the finial and 8" handle to handle. An excellent example with a fabulous form.
